Is your cholestrol high? How do you try to lower it? My cholesterol is very high. The medications to lower cholesterol are way to expensive for me. So I am trying to lower it by diet and exercise, but that doesn't seem to be doing the trick. Any suggestions?

Yes, I have high cholesterol, but it has been going down slowly, I use a margarine designed to lower it, and you use so much each day!

i've read somewhere that a dash of cinnamon can lower levels of bad cholesterol. turmeric, too, has been talked about to have the ability to lower cholesterol, aside from its being an antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory.

Too bad I am not fond of tumeric. I do like cinnamon though. I am going to have to try that one out also. Thank you very much for your useful tips. They are a big help.

Thank you for the advice. I try to avoid the high cholesterol foods, and I do drink lots of water and tea. Exercise is my downfall though. I hate it. Anyway, thanks again for your input.

I think you can try and get your medication through PPA excess it on the internet. If it is one that is necessary you can get it free if you can't afford it. God Bless

Thank you. I have looked into PPA, but for other meds, not the cholesterol ones. I may have to check into it. I was really trying to do it without medication. God Bless you too, my friend.
